What is a Liquid Facelift?
Have you started to notice signs of facial aging – like sagging skin, dark eye circles, and more lines – but you’re not quite ready for a traditional facelift?
For many people, there’s a stage in life where you may feel frustrated or stuck with your anti-aging care. You may no longer be seeing as great results with just your skincare alone – but you may not yet be a good candidate for traditional facelift procedure.
There’s a reason why that’s happening. As people age, their bones begin to lose density due to calcium loss; this means that as bones get smaller, skin starts to appear saggy and more wrinkled. To fix the issue, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Vitolo can add natural-looking volume to drooping skin with an innovative procedure called the Liquid Facelift.
Discover Dr. Vitolo’s Liquid Facelift
Dr. Vitolo’s Liquid Facelift treatment uses a different approach to minimize signs of facial aging, all while helping to enhance the natural contours of your face.
Rather than removing skin to fit facial bones (which is what happens with his scar less facelift procedure), the Liquid Facelift uses dermal fillers to gently but effectively lift drooping skin, thus correcting hollows or sagging that may have occurred as a result of calcium loss in bones. Dermal fillers contain various hyaluronic acid gels, which can be used on different facial areas to replicate lost bone structure.
Additionally, this volumizing effect helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles that may have resulted from sagging skin. The total effects can lead to an overall improvement in aging symptoms as well as facial structure!
Dr. Vitolo takes a detailed approach to helping ensure patients can enjoy their best Liquid Facelift results. During your consultation, you can expect Dr. Vitolo to:
- Examine your face’s natural contours
- Identify which dermal fillers are right for those contours
If the Liquid Facelift is a good option for you, Dr. Vitolo will perform the procedure in about one hour under local anesthesia.
FYI, Botox can also be added to your Liquid Facelift for even better results.
How long does a Liquid Facelift last?
A Liquid Facelift typically lasts about one to two years, depending on the patient.
You may want to try a Liquid Facelift if you’re interested in getting facelift surgery soon, and you’d like to “try out” your results first.
